ParticleFlocker Adds New Baking Features

ParticleFlocker, the full-featured particle flocking system for Maya recently updated adding some great new baking abilities.

a new feature in Particle Flocker for baking particles to joints, transforms or locators.

ParticleFlocker is a plugin that will allow you to create some pretty elaborate flocking and steering behaviours using Mayas Particle System as a base. The plugin lets you create some pretty sophisticated flocking quickly, without using any scripting or expressions.

The latest Bake Function in the particle flocking tool, will let you bake out the particle simulation as joints, locators, or transforms. This can be helpful to move your simulation to another application or a game engine, such as Unity or Unreal. You can even choose to use the baked data for something else, rather than having the simulation stay with Maya particles groups.

Particle Flocker is a Windows only node. You can download a free 14 day evaluation trial, or purchase Particle Flocker for $19.00.
